Lincolnshire Poachers Concours Show

The 2019 Concours will be at

Doddington Hall

Sunday ?th August 2019

Entry and info form

Our Annual concours show has been running for a number of years now and has had different organisers and venues along the way. This year as was the case last year it will be organised by Geoff and Vicki Edge and the venue as last year will be Doddington Hall. The event is open to MG Cars and also any classic car of any Marque will be made more than welcome

To the right is our 2018 venue

Below are a couple of judges assessing carsduring our 2013 Event.


 

The format 0f the event is very simple, clean and polish your pride and joy, drive it to Doddington, clean and polish it again and sit back whilst extremely diligent judges assess your car against a good number of similar entries. Whilst the judges are doing their very best to evaluate your efforts you can enjoy a browse around many other vehicles that are displaying, or chat with friends and similar minded individuals or pop off and see the house and gardens of Doddington Hall

One thing is for sure however, if you don't win you will have a great time and there is always next year. By the way some of us don't take this too seriously and we wash our car and thus when we attend we simply marvel at the efforts of those who practice this brilliant art.

****************

The 2015 Concours Doddington Hall

Sunday 16th August

Unlike last year I was able to attend this year's event.

I was not disappointed the concours was well organised and extremewly well attended.

Huge attendances do not happen by accident they are the result of putting together events that enthusiasts want to attend.

And just as important the organisers work extremely hard to get their message out and attract as many entrants as possible

Thus as a measure of the efforts of the organisers this years event must rank as outstanding

So on behalf of Lincolnshire Centre a big thank you to Vicki and Geoff and their organising team.

Here's a nice testimony, check out this link https://dovepublishing.squarespace.com/blog/2015/8/17/the-culture-of-mg

Naturally I am an MG enthusiast but my 2 favourite vehicles were these 2 extremely rare examples of other makes

An F Type victor I believe

An Austin Mini Van

The 2014 Concours Doddington Hall

Sunday 17th August

Sadly as is often the case for myself I was unable to attend this year's event.

However a number of people who did attend have let me know what a great day out it was for all

So on behalf of Lincolnshire Centre a big thank you to Vicki and Geoff and anyone who helped out on the event

Poacher Concours Show
2014
By
Emma Kiteley-Connon

August 2014 will be remembered for two things, the weather and the MG Car Club Lincolnshire Centre Poacher Concours Show.
Organisers Geoff and Vicki along with their strong team ran another fabulous event and, although Vicki was in hospital, she was still able to keep up to date with the proceedings via modern technology.

This year Doddington Hall welcomed around 90 vehicles of different makes to display in their grounds again and despite the wet and very windy weather, all who attended that day thoroughly enjoyed the event and the beautiful surroundings of the hall. Car enthusiasts came from all over the country to display their cars and chat with like minded people. Oh and to hopefully take a trophy home.

There was a very high turn out of MGTFs this year with ages ranging from thirteen to two years all looking lovely with the beautiful Lincolnshire countryside as their backdrop. Also on display that day was MGs latest edition to the family the MG3. This one is owned by John Hebb and has been featured in MGE. It is so nice to see MGs hitting the streets again and this model is proving popular with drivers young and old.

Every year the show welcomes different makes and models and has two special classes for them, and every year these makes support the show by turning up, displaying and getting into the swing of the event. I’m glad to say this year was no different. MGs were joined by Jaguars, Morris Minors, Rovers, Minis, and Mercedes. There was even an Audi TT. You can always rely on a good selection and that there will be something to interest everyone.
One car that got a lot of interest from visitors and judges a like was a Ford Sierra RS Cosworth. Now these cars get a lot of interest anyway you might be thinking, but what made this one even more exciting was what was under the bonnet. Every part was gold plated from the battery cover to the windscreen washer bottle. When the sun came out, which it did, every part shone like ……..well gold!

The day was topped off by a fly past from the Red Arrows heading home from a show they’d been at towards Brighton.

So as the show season now draws to a close we can be very proud of another very successful Poacher Concours Show. Well done to everyone involved your hard work paid off again.

Oh what am I saying I’ve not mention the winners…………Congratulations to
Brian Cliffton and his MGTD, Kirk Field with his BRoadster, the GT of Peter Newman won best MGBGT, the TF class was won by Len Hartley, John Simpsons gorgeous ZT-T won the Z class.
Colin Payne’s Triumph TR4 won the best Non MG pre 1990’s and Tony Lyndsey in his Mercedes SLK known as “Max” won post 1990’s.
The winner of the Elite class this year was a very popular car again as it was last year the MGA Roadster of Nigel Hanies.

Colin Payne also won the Premier Condition class. And Brian Cliffton’s MGTD won the Premier Concours trophy.
All first place trophies will be awarded at the centres Dinner Dance next year

Below is a list of the successful competitiors and a few photographs.

More photos will be added and I am sure. Thanks

Macmillan

Again this year we have been able to help our friends at Macmillan with a raffle of 2 MG90 banners
The sum raised amounted to £45.00, well done everyone

The 2013 Concours Doddington Hall

The majestic Elizabethan Doddington Hall was the venue for the 2013 Lincolnshire Poacher Concours & Pride of Ownership Show organised, for a third year, by Geoff & Vicki Edge.

This event was another great success & very well supported with no fewer than 85 cars of different makes & models in attendance, all enjoying the wonderful weather, great venue & happy friendly atmosphere.

For those who wanted to exercise their "little grey cells" there was a treasure hunt kindly planned out by Ian & Sue Mackenzie. The clues were to be found around the grounds of this lovely family home & surrounding area.

If that wasn't enough there was also a raffle to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support Charity. This was also very well supported and donations were even made by people who had just popped out for the day due to the lovely weather.

We are very proud to annouce that the raffle raised an amazing £436 for this charity.

Geoff & Vicki would like to thank all the judges who gave their time to judge some of the beautiful cars on display. Pete Lincoln who provided the sound track to the day, again just the right mix of music. Also Peter Best Insurance for sponsoring the show. MG Enthusiast, MOSS, M.R.S Classics, British Motor Heritage, MGF Register, Hamiltion Classics plus many more who very kindly donated prices for the raffle.

Thank you to all at Doddington Hall for looking after everyone's needs, providing lovely food & for letting us host our show in the grounds of your beautiful house & gardens.
